BREAKING: The founder and CEO of Violator Entertainment, integral to the careers of 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip and others has allegedly died of a reported suicide.


Longtime Hip Hop executive Chris Lighty has died. News broke today (August 30) first on Twitter and then confirmed on VIBE.com that the Bronx, New York native and founder of Violator Entertainment died from an alleged suicide. Details are still emerging.

Lighty was integral to the careers of 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, N.O.R.E., Diamond D, and many others. After growing up under the tutelage of Hip Hop icons like DJ Red Alert, Lighty began working professional at Russell Simmons' RUSH Management firm in the late 1980s, where he helped work with Def Jam Records artists and others in securing endorsement deals and touring.

A part of the Native Tongues at the turn of the decade, Lighty and his brother as The Violators, helped the movement alongside A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul.

The Violator name carried on in the late 1990s and 2000s, when Lighty launched his own firm. The management company handled clients ranging from Diamond D and Foxy Brown to Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip. Violator is still in business today. In recent years, Lighty was working on Brand a.sset Group with Lyor Cohen, his longtime a.ssociate and friend, and Warner Music Group.

N.O.R.E. mourned the passing on Twitter, saying, "I will be a Violator for life 4ever."

HipHopDX extends our condolences to the Lighty family, Violator and all of Chris' friends and a.ssociates.
